Welcome to DCSki. Inquiring minds want to know: how did you come up with that moniker?
I must admit some confusion reading your posts: are you also a beginning skier? I have skied 38 years (did not start until 28) and have tried to snowboard once at Snowbird in Utah...on the Chickadee Slope. I figured it would be a snap...wrong. Many falls later I got to the bottom. Was I "goofy" I was asked? HUH?!! Oh, my foot position! It certainly was not easy. I really admire a great snowboarder who can carve real turns high on edge coming down the mountail...beautiful. Unfortunately, many can't and end up snowplowing all the surface in the middle of the trail to the bottom. Some day I might give it another chance. All my kids learned to ski at about age 3-4, and all snowboard now, although my daughter mostly skis.
Like others have said, just enjoy the winter outdoors. One thing I really like about skiing is that for each of us it is an equalizer, although the beginners have trouble seeing this. Whether you are a beginner on a green cliff, a skier trying a blue cliff for the first time, or an experienced skier trying a double diamond cliff, the excitment, fear, etc. is the same.
